Expanding Access to Child Nutrition Programs
Expanding Access to Child Nutrition Programs

Child nutrition programs ensure that kids have access to healthy food where they live, learn and play.  No Kid Hungry campaigns and public and private partners across the country are working to expand access to these critical supports. 

School Breakfast

The School Breakfast Program ensures that kids get the nutrition they need to learn and succeed in school. The most effective way for students to get a healthy breakfast is to make it part of the school day. No Kid Hungry campaigns are working with elected officials, state agencies and school districts across the country to ensure that more schools implement effective Breakfast After the Bell models and adopt the Community Eligibility Provision.

Summer Meals

The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) and Seamless Summer Option (SSO) are critical yet underutilized child nutrition programs.  No Kid Hungry campaigns provide support to organizations to start or expand sites, promote summer meals programs to families and kids and develop collaborative plans for ending summer hunger in communities.

Afterschool Meals

In a survey of low-income parents, a quarter said they worried that their child did not get enough to eat between lunch and breakfast the following day. The At-Risk Afterschool Meals Program and the NSLP snack program help kids get the nutritious meals they need in a safe, supervised location after the school day ends.

Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) is the most powerful and effective anti-hunger program for kids.  It improves families’ access to nutritious food at home by providing resources to purchase food.
